@Roberta,
Thank you Roberta for the unicorn tapestry. I love these Medieval visions they have on these oversized wall rugs.

Thank you Little K for bringing on a few wild horses into the mix.

Roberta

@chai2,
chai, I love this picture. Do you have any information about it. Who created it? Name? Somethin'?

@Roberta,
Walter Crane, Horses of Poseiden

I have a copy of it in my library.

I bought it from Illusions Gallery, online.

On the table in front of it, I made a little minature beach, with sand and shells in a shallow tray.

I love when a little kid first looks at it, and realizes what the waves are.

@chai2,
Thanks. I found it at Illusion gallery. Also found it elsewhere (cheaper). I can't be spending money on this. But I'm not going to forget it. Positively love it. I'm imagining how it looks with the miniature beach.

Sigh and thanks

I just went and looked, and realized I have little colored stones on my beach also, and a couple of burned wooden matches (that I'd used on a candle on the same table) which serves as "driftwood".

I guess the burning candle would have been a bonfire

Went back to the Brooklyn Museum of Art this evening. Got several great animals in art shots. Wish I had a nicer camera then my sad sack cell phone camera.

Here they are ~ the dogs of the bunch:

Lion-Dog (Karashishi). [Circa 1780]. Japan.

Haniwa Head of a Dog. [Circa 5th or 6th century AD]. Japan.

@tsarstepan,
Here they are. The birds of the lot:
http://i35.tinypic.com/35jf5v6.jpg
Coffin for an Ibis. [Circa 305 to 30 BC]. Egypt. Gilded wood, silver, gold, and rock crystal.
http://i34.tinypic.com/35c4b9d.jpg
Eagle Headed Genie [Circa 883 - 859 BC]. Egypt. Alabaster.

From Kiki Smith's Sojourn exhibition:

Kiki Smith is one of my favorite contemporary artists. I wish her exhibition book wasn't so expensive as I would have loved to grab a copy. I guess I'll check the NYPL so I can get a chance to read about the context of her work and this exhibition of mixed media.

One of my favorite paintings in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts:
http://i54.tinypic.com/2cifwg9.jpg
http://www.boston.com/ae/theater_arts/specials/mfa/gallery/10_must_see/#/6
JOHN SINGLETON COPLEY, "Watson and the Shark."

It's a Hollywood Blockbuster action film both in terms of it's scientific inaccuracies (the flaw that sharks have no lips) and the induced thrill that the viewer gets as he hopes and prays that the overboard sailor gets saved from the shark by his heroic comrades.

@encino,
Well, they are not in an art museum, but they are wonderful.

Atm I'm content with watching animals on TV, there I don't have to feed them, can see them animated and real life enviroment contrary stuffed animals or ZOO animals.
I have been traveling alot seeing safari animals etc, but somehow not enjoying it, since tourist food always get the better of me.
